David Gorstein was very successful in identifying outstanding candidates for leadership positions in our newly formed Value Institute. He was highly effective in assisting our Search Committee, not only in identifying such candidates, but also in facilitating on-site visits that in 2 instances led to successful recruitments. I was impressed with the broad scope of professionals that he identified and made available as potential candidates for our new positions. I also appreciated his expertise in assisting our Search Committee with candidate assessment and recruitment strategies for the top candidates. I can very confidently recommend David as a trusted partner in recruiting well qualified candidates for professional leadership roles.

“Besides being an astute business and healthcare professional, David is a great person. He’s genuine, has a great sense of humor, great vision about our industry; he’s honest, selfless, and has an incredibly gifted eye for talent. He was absolutely critical– an indispensable partner to me– during the turnaround of the IT department at Northwestern. And when I use the term “partner” I mean it quite literally. Many of the people he helped me hire for the turnaround have now moved on from Northwestern and progressed their careers into positions of leadership across the US. I am deeply grateful for his contributions to my success as a CIO”
